and with nuclear accidents in japan-w companies having in the past falsified their statements, not having been forthcoming, only to find out later that things were worse than they were the case. now, you hope that because of those incidents things were improved. but i've been watching these press conferences from the beginning. and they are tight-lipped. they are begrudging. you don't learn stuff. questions are asked and not answered. you get conflicting statements, positive statements that are then reversed within an hour. now, you know, let's cut them a break here. i wouldn't want to be in their shoes. these are fast-moving events. and the events themselves change. the reality changes. but they are not helping by not being fully forthcoming because when they aren't then people speculate. people, you know, offer information because there's none -- there's a vacuum there. and the thing that the japanese government has to hold on to is credibility. because you know, this isn't going away tomorrow. it's not going away next week, next month or next year. there's the issue of, if there is contamin

now go to anderson cooper with "ac 360" live from japan. >>> piers, it is truly an extraordinary development to find somebody alive eight days, particularly remarkable when you consider so many of the injuries and the deaths we've seen were caused by that tsunami with all that debris and fast moving water. remarkable that this person apparently survived that long. and also with freezing cold temperatures at night. we'll try to find out more details on that. also the latest on the nuclear emergency that is ongoing right now. in the fukushima daiichi plant. the latest information on that is that the japanese government is finally admitting that the situation has indeed been worse than previously acknowledged. the government giving a grimmer assessment of the disaster, raising the threat level to level five out of seven, conceding it is worse than they previously said, something america's top nuclear regulator has been saying for two days. the wind had been blowing out to sea. it is now blowing on shore. we'll tell you what that means for cities like tokyo. according to "the new yor
